Working hours in six months to a year

I usually try to look for how many hours I have worked on a given project and what hours that I  spend on learning or network management tasks.

Below I have added some hours calculation, after finding the breakdown by months from Berkeley website.

Qlik Sense Hitchhiker

I just started to hitchhike my way through Qlik Sense Desktop Tutorial's.

I started off with Beginning with the Basics and I am in the middle of Building an App. I hope to get the basics out of the way so I can build a app with the application data that I am familiar with.

Initially I was lost in Qlik Sense Getting Started, as I started off with partner portal, from there to community, and then to dev section. Going through getting started or sales videos was just not my kind of thing. Try avoiding watching videos late at night as some would defineately try to put you to sleep. After all that, I was finally able to skip to the Tutorial section and that's where I felt like now we are getting started.

Plain old, Hello World kind of tutorial that I appreciate in web solutions or programming languages or software's, with step by step instructions and no tangent paths.

I hope to get an understanding of scripting as that is my goal to learn Qlik Sense.

Windows 10 with Hyper-V Role and Vagrant Setup

I have been working on a  Udacity project which uses vagrant box for project implementation. I was trying to resolve an issue with vagrant sync folder.

When using the "vagrant up" on a network based on Microsoft Active Directory with MicrosoftAccount\email@outlook.com, one can use the rsync default type of "smb" but when using a regular network, one has to use the rsync folder type of "rsync" as the "MicrosoftAccount\email@outlook.com" does not allow the folders to be synced, even if the folders are in public documents folder on the host machine. The “smb” type will always reject the mapping even though it ask you for the “Windows account” username and password when mounting to guest linux machine.

The reverse was the case when using the non-fully qualified domain Active Directory based network. The active directory has moved away from non-fully qualified domains long ago but I just happen to use one which still has the same old implementation.

[ProductName] folder name in Program Files (x86) AzureQuickstarts.vsix

Strangely, I see a folder name called “[ProductName]” in C:\Program Files (x86)\ folder, and only file that I see in that is “AzureQuickstarts.vsix”.I am not sure at what point did this file got installed. Only guess so far is that it may have been installed with update of Visual Studio.I hope no one else is experiencing such an issue.

Windows Live ID Auth OS - Buffalo NAS Network Drive through AD Domain

I have ran into it seems a unique situation which is not getting resolved no matter how many online help pages and guides I follow.My issues seems to be unique that no one have encountered or posted a issue like mine.My laptop is authenticated through Windows Live ID and it is not connected to my company domain. The drive I want to connect to is a Buffalo NAS system with DLNA enabled and the authentication is setup through my company AD which is a non fully qualified domain.The NAS shows up in my list of network locations but that only shows "Music, Pictures and Videos" option and not the folders mapped on that drive for storage.For now it seems I have to take a break from figuring this thing out, sometime in future I would have to resolve this issue.
